6:07 pm
advisory group that will study options for creating a scoring system. officials say it is progress but there is still a long way to go. >> this is one of those times when what you don't know can't hurt you. ignorance is not bliss. you want to know what you're getting, likely to get something better if the person putting the meal on the table knows they can be held accountable. >> restaurants in santa clara don't have to post their inspection report on site. but if you ask to see it they have to show it to you. our undercover investigation found many restaurants won't. so the county sent out post cards reminding restaurants of the law. did it work? well, we wen5c under cover aga and we'll show you what happened tonight at 11:00 and why some are calling for even more change. okay, thank you, jenna, if you have a tip for anyone else in our investigative you nut please call or send an e-mail to the unit. and new tonight at 6:00,

6:10 pm
wouldn't talk on camera, but says he is surprised, calling yun a good guy, others don't know what to make of it. >> i know the senior pastor, we all know him and our prayers are with them and just you know, it is a terrible situation. >> if we had not arrested anybody else in this entire operation, it would have been worth all theçó resources knowi that we got this youth minister arrested, who thought he was coming to have sex with a child. >> reporter: so far we're not aware of any concern involving any of the 40 kids the youth pastor oversees here. but he faces serious charges in florida, including traveling to meet a minor and to commit lewd acts. jodi hernandez, nbc bay area news. and get ready for a unique and wacky event, sudden, the annual bay to breakers race, but this time around the vibe will

be slightly different. in recent years, sobriety and clothing were required but often ignored. those rules were not new, but this year they may be better enforced. they had an updated safety plan, based in part on what was learned from last month's boston marathon bombings. the bomb techs will be on scene to allow for quick response to any package. we'll also have k-9s around, and then also 16 neighboring agencies have provided regional support. >> still fun but just not as wacky. specifically, they will have k-9 units and bomb technicians on call. a crazy idea, but with your dollars it just may work, i'm scott budman, coming up, how a bay area company may help to bring the blue angels back to san francisco. i would have -- would be still in there. that is a good blessing.
6:12 pm
>> it is a blessing for a lot of people, a local group known around the country for how they get wrongly convicted men and women out of prison. tonight, we'll show you how st. louis cardinals innocence project is getting the job done. and in santa cruz, you see a mountain lion wanders downtown, the amazing rescue. and i'm jeff fournier, we're tracking major cloud cover in emeryville, we'll let you know more about the cloud cover and heating as well. d
6:13 pm
6:14 pm
disingenu . right about now a mountain lion who wandered in the santa cruz mountains woke up with a brand-new collar and no memory
6:15 pm
of how he got there. about 7:00 this morning he jumped into the water and found himself trapped by the walls. fish and wildlife officers were on hand for a capture, and rescue crews moved in with nets and confirmed the big cat was a male about 2 years old. he was tagged, collared and released so the wildlife experts can track him remotely from now on. on the peninsula, a six-year legal drama involving one of the nation's leading psychologist is over tonight. 81-year-old william ayers pled no contest to the charges involving young boys referred to him in the '90s. prosecutors identified at many as 30 victims. the first trial he had ended in a hung jury back in 2009. ayres faces a maximum of 22
6:16 pm
years in prison when sentenced this august. and imagine being wrongly convicted and spending years in jail for something you didn't do. it happens quite often. but there is a group in the south bay whose mission is to free innocent people. here is nbc bay area stephanie trong. >> let's talk about what is a switch. >> reporter: from santa clara university, a classroom full of law students to a distant world in oakland. and an emotional homecoming between mom and son, what do these roads have in common? ronald ross's freedom, to be exact. >> feel a whole lot of relief. >> reporter: he was locked up for almost seven years for a shooting he had nothing to do with. >> being in a place like that, something happens -- it is ridiculous. you know? for something you didn't do, it takes a lot out of you. >> and from 40 miles away. this class known as the northern
6:17 pm
california innocence project has exonerated 17 men and women put in prison for crimes they didn't commit. that is since 2001. in the last three months the class has helped to clear not just ross but another oakland man, johnny williams, who spent 14 years behind bars for an attempted rape he was innocent of. >> let me tell you, that is one of the most powerful things to tell. >> reporter: innocence project legal director linda star says the project has given hundreds of students the chance to learn about the criminal justice system, from the best teacher of all, experience. >> we have contributed to policy work and law reform in the areas of misconduct and eyewitness identification and compensation for the people exonerated. >> reporter: students step into the shoes of a real criminal defense attorney, looking through documents, conducting countless interviews and going on field trips to prison. of course that goes past the classroom walls and teaches it
6:18 pm
takes a lot of hard work and patience. >> there is a lot of people in prison where there is nothing -- like who are innocent, and there is potentially nothing you can do. so everyone doesn't get out. >> reporter: but ross made it out. and months after he took his first steps as a free man he came face to face with students from the innocence project who work on cases just like his. >> i mean, if it wasn't for them i would still be in there. so i definitely feel blessed. >> reporter: they asked questions, trying to learn more about that life. >> i knew one day sooner or later i would be out of here. but in the meantime, i just dealt with everyday punches, just took one day at a time. >> reporter: the credit for this class comes in college unit, but for students, the real credit comes with changing a life, allowing people like ronald ross to close old doors and open new ones. and for ross, that path leads back home, and home is where his kids are. >> you know it is going to be
6:19 pm
the greatest moment in my life right now. >> reporter: stephanie trong, nbc bay area news. >> an amazing group at santa clara university. and quite a change this morning, we saw rain, kind of a nice, pleasant surprise. how much did we get? >> anywhere from trace amounts, to about 200th of an inch. i wanted to show you the radar, you can see from the north bay all the way to the south bay we got into the shower activity again this morning. very, very rare for 2013, as i've been saying we're going down as one of the driest calendar years on record, at least to date. santa teresa, 200th of an inch, not only with the rainfall but yes also windy here. gusts as high as 35 miles an hour in san francisco, concord, 25, santa rosa, also 21, and hayward at 20 miles an hour, the current radar picture has the
6:20 pm
showers produced this morning pushing way off to the east making way for clearing. we still had something to deal with. let's get you to the hd sky network. cloud cover in san jose, generally clearing here with also the blue skies. but as we take you off to the north, what you notice is the marine layer. that is all that cloud cover there, up to about 2,000 feet that youda see right across the peninsula through palo alto and areas to the north. and san francisco, gradually moving in tonight. not only are the clouds and coastline possible, airport delays could happen tomorrow, maybe drizzle for san francisco in the northern half of the peninsula. the jet stream that allowed all the shower activity at least this morning is now going to moderate, lifting off to the north, making way for high pressure offshore. dry winds coming out of the north, potentially increasing our temperatures here again by about 10 to 20 degrees, also lowering the humidity, increasing the fire danger namely as we head into sunday and monday's forecast. so let's get a look at
6:21 pm
temperatures h friday, cloudy but a lot more sunshine than we had for today, expected for tomorrow. with temperatures generally in the upper 60s and also low 70s. heating up here more as we look at the three-day forecast, saturday, sunday, inland temperatures, mid-80s, cool at the coastline. and wouldn't you know it? yesterday the last day of the hurricane season, we had the first named tropical storm alvin, this looks for the storm for the fish at this point. but we'll continue to track it. storms made it all the way up to california. we'll have more all the way throughout the hurricane season on anything that could come our way mehere in california. thank you, jeff. they are a beautiful part of the bay area, but many are becoming an expensive problem. why palm trees have one city digging deep.

6:24 pm
6:25 pm
. it was a hectic commute on bart, a man kept police running, police say the 29-year-old man went up a shaft on the top of the train, he ran along the freeway there, along 980. and he got on the roof again of the bart train. the situation ended with an arrest and a trip to the hospital for a psychological evaluation, the man was sent to jail on suspicion of trespassing, and interfering or delaying the operation of a train. and nurses at marin hospital are warning there is a computer glitch. they want it to be on hold. they say the glitches with the physician order entry system have led to patients receiving the wrong medication. they reportedly warned the administrators before the may 7th rollout. hospital officials challenged
6:26 pm
the suggestion that patient safety has been compromised, saying that in spite of implementation issues the system is safer for patients than the old paper system. and in san mateo county, they're bringing something new, the h 1-n 1-virus, the elephant seals don't get sick from the virus but they could pass it along to the biologists. experts suspect they could have passed them to the seals. the human virus was there before, but never one that was part of a pandemic. and also, an internet celebrity, he is on the wrong side of the law, why police are trying to find him. and the silicon valley start-up takes on the federal government in an effort to get the blue angels to fly again. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪

6:28 pm
6:29 pm
this is interesting, grounded because of the government sequester, but can they be allowed to fly again? >> our tech reporter, scott budman has more on how you can help. >> reporter: well, blue angels has a crazy idea, raise enough money to let them fly q+hhere. it is a big number, but the start-up knows a thing or two about investing, and they're willing to help. >> reporter: the blue angels have taken their last flight over the bay area.
6:30 pm
or have they? inside crowd kill, the san francisco kostart-up that lets anybody invest in the project. they're trying to bring the blue angels back to the bay. >> the last two nights, especially last night it started to take on steam. >> reporter: the ceo showed us how anyone can jump on line and look for investors. in this case, a local blue angels fan wants to raise $650,000, an audacious amount. >> just a way to aggravate that demand and use social media and twitter, facebook, to really kind of spread the words. and it becomes -- still audacious, but a little more doable. >> reporter: the crowd tilt has already been around for a year but already has helped investors from the small to the big. remember, this campaign to replace the boat ruined in the
6:31 pm
boston marathon standoff, all brought by the people that went to the website. >> the communication, the dollars, kind of this natural instinct we have of wanting to be a part of something. so you see it starting to take off. you just want to be a part of it. it is a community taking off. >> reporter: a community that is growing, project by project, and 4,ibsoon to a skyline near you. now we reached out to the navy today. they say the blue angels can't accept private funding for things like fleet week and will not fly until the u.s. government allows for it. crowd tilt says it does not collect money until the final goal is reached and still are hopeful that maybe the two sides can reach an agreement. >> we'll see what happens, thanks scott. and new details in the deadly boston bombings.
6:32 pm
an apparent confession. police say that dzhokhar tsarnaev wrote a note where he was hiding. he said the bombings were retaliation for the bombings elsewhere. he told the same thing to police after his arrest. the two brothers are accused of carrying out the attack last month that killed three people, and wounded over hundred. tamerlan was killed in a police shootout. and u.s. marshals lost two former participants in the program identified as known or suspected terrorists. it was discovered after a justice department audit found gaps in the witness protection program. it says the government failed to provide the fbi screening center with witnesses on the no-fly list. and some may have ended up on commercial flights. those witnesses include suspected terrorists who were placed in the program after testifying against others. >> his name is kye, the hitch hiker, a viral star once
6:33 pm
regarded as a hero. he was called the hatchet wielding hitchhiker after he used the butt of his blade to stop an attack in fresno. he is called a murde&er and wanted for the death of a new jersey lawyer found dead in his home on monday. prosecutors say the lawyer brought kye to his home to spend the night. kye is considered armed and dangerous. and experts say a water leak is probably the culprit behind a mysterious landslide that swallowed homes. it says the soil is saturated. new cracks are appearing every day, continuing to threaten homes in the lakeside heights subdivision. two houses have already been crushed and two others are just hanging on. an emergency was declared after the earth suddenly opened up in
6:34 pm
march, forcing evacuations of seven of the 29 homes. ridership is booming for caltrans they predict service cuts if nothing is done to improve the financial state. in tonight's reality change, we look at how cal train could be changing. >> good evening, the things sound like they're contradictory. doesn't sound like it makes a lot of sense, the cal train rider ship is bringing more money and demands, but the funding is important to cal train, that money, for a variety of reasons is drying up. creating quite the conundrum that they're desperate to find a solution for. right now it is hard to tell if cal-train is coming in with a bang or leaving the station with a whimper. you see ridership has been
6:35 pm
jumping in revenue for three straight years, making a demand for train cars. yet the agency is still in the dark about whether or not they can maintain their level through 2013. >> the contributions are voluntary. and in years where one of the member agencies is experiencing an unusually tight budget, they can reduce their contribution. that is what is happening now. >> reporter: this is jamie ackman of cal train, talking about the vta and city and county of san francisco who collectively share the burden of running and partly funding cal-train voluntary. you see it turns out they don't have any one pot of money dedicated to its operations. this is another way to look at it. they can trace back their woes to where they get their funding, a nice chunk getting larger with the demand. but 40% comes from the power board, the three agencies we
6:36 pm
just mentioned who are seeing their own contributions getting smaller as they struggle withrd their own deficit. >> in their case, there is no money left over. sam trans is operating with a deficit, annual deficit. we're pulling money out of reserves in order to continue to operate our bus and repair transit services and meet our obligations here in san mateo county. >> reporter: but things don't have to come to a stop for cal train. one of the agency's original architects and the man whose name sits on the cal train hub says they really need a short term situation. until they join the 21st century. if they can't pony up money, what about a tax, they say. >> the advantages were there to prove it. we're in a remarkable area in
6:37 pm
california where the people do really understand how transportation and the economy works. >> reporter: but will voters pull the trigger on the tax increase for cal train. he says they have done polling and the two thirds vote required in each county may fly in san francisco orn'k san mateo. but it appears quite unlikely in santa clara. >> going to have to curb your enthusiasm here. even in san francisco polls show the tax would be close to passing, no guarantee. so the reality is when the founders conceived cal train they brought a tool for the bay area. however, they didn't create a funding stream to go with it. unless one is explicitly approved by the voters or created by the state government seems more than likely there will be a service cut'gfç cominy 2015, even with a spike in ridership. up next, if your boss paid you an extra half a million bucks by mistake, would you give it back? it happened to one of the
6:38 pm

6:46 pm
highly contagious trees should be torn down. the department of public works says they're replacing the trees with others not susceptible to disease, they move forward with other development projects, they say. >> we can't keep planning them. we need to look at the palms if we want them for the application. >> reporter: they shouldn't plant the palm trees at all. in the city of transplants and immigrants, others say the tall palms feel right at home. joe rosati junior, nbc bay area news. >> the trees are gorgeous, $35,000 per tree, a lot of money. yes, it is beautiful, though, a check of the forecast, are we in the clear now jeff?

6:48 pm
sausalito and tiburon. take a look if you have an hd screen, you can see on the left side of the screen, those are lenticular clouds. when you have the high-powered winds in the jet stream, they are moving in higher elevations with cooler cloud formations. try to google lenticular, they're cool and fast naturecin. all right, the high pressure here, just as we finally get the storm pattern to break. showers, high pressure moving onshore the next three to four days, temperatures increase about ten to 20 degrees. dry northerly winds come around the back side of this, for the fire warnings potentially by sunday and monday. not a high fire danger tomorrow, lots of widespread cloud cover here for all the counties we're highlighting. back in solano, santa cruz, also
6:49 pm
san francisco, and right up into the north bay. but by the afternoon, plenty of sunshine for the interior valleys, all the areas we highlight here. for the east bay down to the south bay. holding onto the cloud cover for san francisco, if you are heading there, you hear visiting, you want to do all the classic san francisco stuff, the breeze, cooler air in place, also cloud cover by the golden gate bridge. temperatures in the morning hours, upper 40s, low 50s. extremes. friday, numbers are not too much warmer, in the south bay, mid-70s to you in san jose. an official high of 71, los gatos, palo alto, 79, the east bay, upper 60s, low 70s, 70 in walnut creek and 78 in the castro valley, and 65 in alameda, right up to bogeda bay,

6:51 pm
won consecutive games. if this pattern continues the win will go to the home team, the warriors, they are veteran savvy, golden state looks like it is wearing down, and stef cure and his bum ankle, combined to shoot to six and 22 in tuesday's game five loss. for more, we go to oracle, and welcome in henry wilford live. what do you think? >> reporter: well, dave, when the playoffs started so many people talked about the golden state warrior's lack of experience but that didn't hurt them against the denver nugget. they won that series. they have to push them to seven games and beat the san antonio spurs. tonight is game six, curry
6:52 pm
